Dueling Darlings June Challenge

The Dueling Darlings are dueling and our theme this month was gardening.  Darlene was the hostess for the Dazzlers and sent a wonderful kit full of all kinds of great things.

Her kit included:

Image:  Gardening Shelf by Stamps Happen
Cardstock:  Conqueror Diamond White
DP:  K & Company, Lemon Citron Pack
Embellishments:  Ribbon by Paper Studio, Silk plaid ribbon by Ribbon Boutique
Dimensional flower by K & Company
Flowers by Recollections
Candi Dots by CraftWorkCards
Dragonfly Brad by Creative Impressions
Glitter Ladybug by Spare Parts, Paper Studio
Garden Tool Brads by Eyelet Outlet

here's my card:

And a gardening tip (not originally mine, but shared with me by a gal I used to work for who was great with flowers)....

Don't water your outdoor flowers with cold water from a garden hose.  Those little pretties like water that is not too hot and not too cold.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Please see my sidebar for all the Darlings blogs and check out their gardening creations.
